The City of Andalusia on Tuesday announced its plans to develop the historic downtown Prestwood Building in partnership with CDG Engineering, Big Mike’s, and Town and Country Boutique. The building, which dates back to the late 1800s, is located on the west side of the court square. 


CDG, which was first established in Andalusia nearly 75 years ago, will develop the top floor to host its corporate and Andalusia employees. 


Big Mike’s currently has steak and seafood restaurants throughout Alabama, and plans to launch a new concept featuring pizzas, salads, and wings. The new restaurant, Luie's, will occupy the south side of the ground floor, and is expected to also have outdoor dining. 


Town and Country Boutique currently is located on the bypass, and will return to its roots. The boutique, which celebrates 70 years this year, began operations on the Square in 1951. Current owner Terri Jones Proctor plans to expand current offerings when the boutique moves to the north side of the ground floor.


The construction projects are expected to take about a year.
